Hi guys,

I just finished a FPP tournament #643348270. I ranked 25th and there was a pop up window which said something like "Congratulations you have finished 1st". But I didn't receive any FPPs yet? My question is did I won something and if so how long do I need to wait in order to receive my FPPs ?

Thanks in advaice,
V.Valchev

Most if not all FPP tournaments are satellites to bigger games.

Click on Requests/ Tournament Tickets and it will list your tickets along with any games you can use with them.

Well thanks for the fast replay! I just checked my tickets and I have just two tickets (issued 2 Nov)which I had before:
1x PSO member which I got when I finished the test I think
1x Depositor Freeroll which I got when I put some real money into the game.

So I do not have FPPs or ticket?

You were automatically registered for the target tourney # 2012110029.

To find the tourney, from the main lobby enter Ctrl + T and enter the tourney number above.

You may be able to unregister from the tourney to receive $1.00 in cash or T$.

Or Ctrl+R to see what tournaments you're registered in.

Thanks for the explanation guys. Yes I was automatically registered for tourney but the time which the tourney begins was not convenient for me so I unregistered and I got T-$1.

What is still confusing for me is the fact that on the tournament window was written "total prize pool 1500FPP" and yet I got T-$1. Why it says FPP when the prize is a tournament dollar ?


Thanks again!
Cheers

The prize is the ticket to the tourney, not Fpp's.
The number of fpp's in the prize pool is a measure of how many tournament tickets will be awarded, so if there are 1500 fpps in the pool, and there is one ticket awarded for each 150fpps in the prize pool, 10 tournament tickets will be awarded, the top 10 players would each be a winner.

The reason you got T$ was because you un regestard from the tournament,the entrance cost had you not won a ticket would have been $1, and it was this amount that was in fact refunded to you.
